Minors must be completed at the same time as the BA or BS degree. No more than 8 credits from courses taken outside AUP may be applied towards a minor, and these courses must be specifically accepted by the department supervising the minor. All courses counting in a minor must be completed with a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade point average, with no individual grade lower than “C-.”

Courses taken to satisfy requirements for a minor must include at least three courses which are not being applied towards a major or towards another minor. Courses taken to satisfy the Core Curriculum requirements, including FirstBridge courses, may be applied towards a minor. Minors do not appear on diplomas but are noted on students' transcripts. A self-designed minor is an option for students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher; the student and her or his advisor design these minors.
